Subject RE: Preparing for an Apache cTAKES 3.2 Release?
Date Mon, 16 Jun 2014 15:22:45 GMT
As far as which is the default, I'm curious what the implementers of dictionary-lookup2 think.
If we have something faster that is equally as good, and we know one complaint about cTAKES
is its speed, then why not have the new one be the default?

I'm making some significant updates to trunk that may cause some instability for this release.
It should be mostly transparent, but let me know if you encounter any issues with trunk.

Also, regarding the dictionary-lookup2.  If there are no strong objections, we can leave default
to as-is (old behavior).  Folks who wish to give the new one a try are welcome to do so and
we can change the default behavior in a future release.

[ducks for cover now]
